Lake Wales, FL — Christopher Whaley, 23, is in police custody after reportedly admitting to fatally stabbing his grandmother as she bathed Saturday evening.

The proverbial sh*t apparently hit the fan shortly after a verbal confrontation between Whaley, his grandmother, 69-year-old Barbara Denmark, and another relative as the family was preparing to return home from a mini-vacation in Daytona Beach.

“Chris is exceptionally angry because he’s been forced to come home and couldn’t stay with new best friends,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “So angry that he decided to kill his grandma who he’d been living with for the last five years.”

Family members told police that Whaley lived with Denmark for the last five years because, due to his “mischievous” behavior, she was the only one that would take him in. Shocking.

Anyway, upon his return home, Whaley began plotting. He decided to off grandma first, then figured he’d head on over to the aunt’s house and kill her, too.

With a knife in each hand, Whaley allegedly entered his grandmother’s bathroom and proceeded to slash and stab, leaving the woman with nearly 25 stab wounds.…

Sarasota, FL – Paul Berloni, 49, was charged with DUI, driving with a suspended license, and child neglect/endangerment on Sunday for towing his 7-year-old granddaughter behind his SUV while he was drunk enough to decline a field sobriety test, but not drunk enough to agree to one.

The young girl, who was wearing only a bathing suit and no protective gear, was allegedly being towed in a plastic Hot Wheels car at between five and ten miles per hour.  The toy was “secured” to the SUV with dog leashes tied to the trailer hitch.

Belinda Berloni, aside from having a name only a cartoon character should possess, was stupid enough to be going along with the whole thing, reportedly cheering her granddaughter on from an open rear door of the vehicle.  She was also charged with child neglect/endangerment, and was reportedly crocked as well.  Surprise.  Surprise.

A deputy spotted the drunken idiocy and immediately put a stop to it, noting, upon speaking to Paul Berloni, that he smelled strongly of alcohol. …

Henderson, NV —  A 1-year-old boy died on Saturday after being attacked by the family dog while celebrating his first birthday with family.

The unidentified boy was at his grandmother’s house with family when he crawled over to the family’s six-year old, 120-pound Mastiff/Rhodesian mix to pet it. According to the family, they have raised the dog since he was a puppy and he had never shown aggression towards anyone before.

But on this occasion the dog attacked the boy, latching his mouth around the little boy’s head and then shaking him like a chew toy. The boy’s grandmother immediately tried to pull the boy out of the dog’s mouth to no avail.

The boy’s father was upstairs when the attack occurred but was able to get the dog to let go within 20 seconds of the attack. But the damage to the boy was devastating.  “The baby’s face was torn off,” he said. The boy was rushed to the hospital but would die a few hours later.

Animal control officers took the dog to an animal shelter where he will be quarantined for ten days.…

Lilbourn, MO — I’m a little late with this one because I somehow managed to miss it. But seeing as how Dakota Valkyrie mentioned it during Saturday’s drunkcast, I figured I’d throw it up. Literally… kinda.

The smokin’ hot mass of flesh to the left is 48-year-old Melissa Eaton (no pun intended) — she’s been accused of boinkin’ a teenage boy on a fairly regular basis for the past two years. No, I don’t know if he’s stupid, blind and/or mentally impaired…

According to authorities, the heavenly beast began violating the boy back in April of 2010, when he was just 13, and continued until February of this year. Investigators and juvenile authorities believe the two hooked up for nookie (and cake?) at least twice a week.

Eatin’ pleaded not guilty to more than a dozen charges of statutory rape and sodomy late last week. I do believe the beast is still caged. And hongry.

I realize most teen boys will hit anything warm and squishy, but damn….…

Salem, OR – Christina Marie Lopez, 42, was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday after pleading guilty to attempted use of a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct for allowing her 17-year-old daughter, Nicole Madril, to work as a nude stripper.  She is also required to register as a sex offender for the next ten years.

Back in December, Lopez, possibly the Guinness Book’s current world-record holder for “Most Haggard-Looking 42-Year-Old,” complained to police and the media that Presley’s Playhouse in Salem had hired her underage daughter as a “dancer.”  At the time, she was claiming that she’d only become aware of her daughter’s new job after finding high-heeled shoes in her bedroom.

She was quoted as saying, “It makes me sick.  Makes me sick thinking she’s 17, but to me she still has a little kid’s body.”  My translation?  Glad you asked: “My girl needs some implants real bad.”

From my perspective, I view Lopez’s offense more as a crime against all but the optically challenged, and I can’t help but think she was busy working on a hare-brained scheme to get some kind of a court settlement from the club.…

Nashville, TN — A 39-year-old babysitter accused of breaking off a 3-4 inch hairbrush handle in her young charge’s ass had one hell of an explanation for police — she was simply trying to relieve the poor tot of his constipation.

According to police, Becky Burlison was arrested on charges of aggravated child rape and felony child abuse earlier this month, after allegedly violating the 2-year-old tot’s poop chute with the handle…. twice. It was during the second insertion that the handle broke off and became lodged inside the boy’s body.

Burlison reportedly told police she thought the kid might be constipated and believed the insertion of the brush handle might stir things up a bit and get the kid to crap.

Police say Burlison waited about 45-minutes for the handle to reappear before seeking medical assistance. Fortunately, the child was able to pass it without surgery.

The dumbass was ordered held on a $200,000 bond.…

Muncie, IN – An Indiana woman suspected of DUI was taken back into custody after police say she fled a police station and ran to her home almost three miles away.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Brandy Star Williams, 31, was arrested early Friday after police officers saw her vehicle hit a curb and exceed the speed limit. She was stopped and a portable breath test measured Williams’ BAC to be 0.188 percent.

Williams was taken to a police station to undergo an official breath test. According to police, while seated and waiting – in handcuffs – next to Muncie police officer Michael Rehfus, Williams “stood up and she bolted out the door.” Rehfus’ report said Williams then “jumped over a railing and fled on foot.”  Rehfus and other officers chased Williams on foot, but reportedly lost her about two-tenths of a mile away.  Wow.  Two-tenths…

“Officers in pursuit. [pant]  Suspect now two-tenths of a mile northeast?!? [pant]  She’s a freakin’ MACHINE!!! [pant]”

Williams would be located a short time later at her home – nearly three miles from the police station from which she had ‘hurriedly departed.’  She was taken back into custody.…

Salt Lake City, UT – A robbery attempt went south after a store clerk with a crowbar tested the resolve of a perpetrator who claimed to have a gun. The wannabe robber was apprehended a short time later after a police chase by car and foot.

According to police, Michael Gagon walked into a Fresh Market gas station convenience store and demanded money after saying he had a gun in his belt. Police said, in response, the female clerk produced a crowbar and told Gagon, “You’d better be a good shot.”

With his planned robbery now presumably streaming down his leg in both liquid and… well… semi-liquid form, the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle he had reportedly carjacked from a Papa John’s delivery guy. With no other pressing business to attend to, the clerk made a note of Gagon’s vehicle and called police.

News reports said Gagon ended up on a dead end street with police in pursuit.  Police said that he abandoned the vehicle and went into a residential area on foot.…

WATERTOWN, NY – On the evening of April 19, 21-year-old Jessica Baughman allegedly escalated an argument with her grandmother by removing 12 of her grandmother’s pet goldfish from their tank and sautéing them until they died.  She also broke the elderly woman’s wooden wolf statue which was valued at all of twenty dollars.

Apparently, after the fish fry, there was an extended lull in the fighting because it wasn’t until about 12:30 a.m. when the police were called.  It seems that the argument had resumed and grandma, 63-year-old Vera Nichols, claims that Baughman had become enraged again, pushing her until she fell onto a bed.

Baughman was arrested on charges of felony cruelty to animals, fourth degree criminal mischief and second degree harassment. Baughman was detained at the Metro-Jefferson Public safety Building and her bond was set at $2000

I know I’d be pretty peeved if someone murdered one of my pets in a culinary fashion but I couldn’t help myself, I laughed trying to imagine how this transpired.  Maybe I’m a big old jerk, I don’t know.…

Texas City, Tx – On Thursday, 45-year-old Kevin Edison Smith  received a life sentence after a jury took 30 minutes to convict him of the 1996 rape and strangulation of 13-year-old Krystal Jean Baker.

On March 5 1996, Baker got into a fight with her grandmother and was looking for a way to get to a friend’s house. She was last seen walking from her grandmother’s house to a convenience store where she tried to call her mother. Her body would be found dumped under a Trinity River bridge later that night. She had been raped before she was strangled to death.

Her murder remained unsolved for 14 years until a Chambers County sheriff’s officer took her dress and resubmitted it for analysis using current technology. A semen stain was found, and the resulting DNA recovered was matched to a DNA sample Smith had submitted after a minor drug arrest in 2010.

After his arrest, Smith admitted on videotape that he gave Baker a ride, then choked her with a leather strap when she “started freaking out on me.”

Smith did not take the stand during his trial, but was defiant in the courtroom regarding the evidence suggesting sexual assault.…

Man Killed By Wood At Nudist Camp

April 27, 2012 at 3:20 pm by  

Bernards, NJ – When I first learned that someone had been killed by wood at a nudist camp, my ears perked up.  My mind raced, my butt involuntarily clenched, and I started scanning the room for available knives, perhaps even a makeshift shiv.

And then, after I’d read further, only to find out that the wood reference was a literal one, I eased up, poured a cup of coffee, and decided to write a brief story on Dreamin’ Demon about it, feeling far less trepidation than I otherwise would have.

A 25-year-old Tamke Tree Express employee, Nicholas Rutkowski, was working with two other men, removing a tree at Sky Farm Nudist Club, when a 4-foot, 70-pound branch came hurtling down from a height of 40 feet to make fatal contact with him.

He was wearing all the required safety gear, including a hardhat, but died on-site before he could be taken to the hospital.  There’s conflicting information out there on whether it was a 70-pound branch and a 40-foot drop, or a 40-pound branch and a 70-foot drop, but I hardly think it matters at this juncture.…

SOUTH FORK CANYON, UT – Two men have been arrested after admitting to setting some potentially lethal booby traps along a popular hiking trail.

The traps were discovered on April 16th by U.S. Forest Officer James Schoeffler while investigating reports of suspicious activity along Big Springs Trail. He had been checking out a popular, makeshift dead-wood shelter when he found the first trap.

“As he investigated the shelter he noticed what appeared to be a trip wire near the ground at an entrance. Upon further investigation he discovered that the trip wire led to a booby trap device which was made with a large rock, sticks sharpened at both ends, and was held together with rope,” said a statement issued by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.

If the wire had been tripped, the boulder was designed to swing at head height. Schoeffler, using his experience as a a bomb disposal technician, decided to check around for more traps.

“Typically, anywhere I’ve been, if there’s one, there’s two, if there’s three, there’s four,” Schoeffler said.…

Baltimore – A Baltimore woman was able to smuggle a kitchen knife into a Department of Social Services and then used it to stab her 8 month old child in the face, chest and neck.

Kenisha Thomas, 29, was at the Baltimore Social Services office having a supervised visit with her infant daughter that she no longer has custody of.

Visitors are supposed to pass through a metal detector and are subjected to bag screenings, but as the end of their visit ticked away she pulled out a long, wood handled kitchen knife and started stabbing her baby in the neck and face.

Hearing screams of help, co-workers rushed into the conference room to see the mother holding the infant on the table and pressing the blade of the knife to her throat. Kenisha was met with a chair to the face and pinned to the ground until help could arrive.

Kenisha being the lady she is, exclaimed, “I hope my baby is dead!” and then proceeded to bite the man who was holding her down. …

Sandpoint, ID – An Idaho man is in court after allegedly demanding another man to “moonwalk” at gunpoint. The man has since testified that the AR-15 used in the incident is simply an Airsoft pellet gun.

Sheriff’s deputies were reportedly summoned to the home of John Ernest Cross, 30, on Monday after receiving a report that Cross had pointed a rifle at another man while demanding that he execute a ‘dance move.’ Shockingly, police report that drugs were involved.

The local news source reporting on the incident makes the point that, although the late singer Michael Jackson popularized the moonwalk dance move, many other entertainers have been credited for using a variation of the move including Cab Calloway, Ronnie Hawkins, David Bowie and Dick Van Dyke.

From this, it would be reasonable to conclude that Cross’ compadre could have abided a casual – albeit determined – request and simply executed the famous move.  But, noooooooooooo. …he had to get all whiny and police-y about it. Some friend!

Cross is now charged with aggravated assault and is being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.…

St. Paul, MN – A six-time felon is being held on federal weapons charges while he is being investigated regarding the alleged extortion of a female Ohio State University student whose laptop was stolen. The laptop reportedly contained explicit pictures and videos of the owner.

Demonte Johntrell Latimore, 24, has been linked by police and FBI to email accounts used to extort money from the owner of the laptop.

According to police, on Dec. 5 a female college sophomore at Ohio State University reported that someone had stolen her Apple MacBook when she left is briefly unattended while at the campus library. Two weeks later, the student said she received an e-mail from a stranger: “Well you don’t know me but I’m sure I have something you want very badly back. The question is how BAD…..?? Oh yeah, you have a very lovely body,” it said.

According to the FBI’s Cyber Crime Task Force in Minneapolis, the e-mail coming from traced back to an email address in St. Paul, Minnesota.…

Woodland Park, NJ – Steven Vigorito Jr., a 12-year veteran of Woodland Park Police Department and married father of two, was arrested while on duty Tuesday for allegedly attempting to arrange a sexual encounter with a 12-year-old girl just days after visiting her home regarding an unrelated domestic dispute.

I’m going to take this opportunity to point out that this girl has only been alive for as long as Vigorito has been on the job.

Apparently, the girl’s mother phoned police on Monday after Vigorito had responded to the aforementioned domestic dispute at their home.  She told them that he had made some inappropriate comments to the 12-year-old, given her his personal cell phone number, and asked her to text him.  The police then immediately contacted the prosecutor’s office and they put a detective on the case, posing as the girl, and began exchanging text messages with the accused.

Over the next several days, the texts reportedly became more explicit, including a picture of Vigorito exposing himself while in uniform. …

BALTIMORE, MD – Police announced they have a man in custody in connection with the murder of 16-year-old Phylicia Barnes.

In January 2010, Barnes traveled from North Carolina to visit her half-sister in Baltimore during Christmas break.  She disappeared from her sister’s apartment complex on Dec 28 shortly after leaving to get something to eat.  On April of 2011, her dead body was found floating in the Susquehanna River.

On Wednesday, police arrested Michael Johnson, the ex-boyfriend of Barnes’ older sister and the last person to see her alive.  Johnson had been questioned several times during the investigation and was asked to provide a DNA sample.  He dated Barnes’s sister for over 10 years, according to Barnes’ father.

This arrest comes on the heels of the lead investigator, Detective Daniel T. Nicholson IV, being suspended after being accused of using his position to investigate his own daughter’s disappearance last weekend.  She was eventually found safe, but an investigation was launched into whether or not Nicholson improperly used departmental resources in his search.…
